Each day Vietnam gains importance on the world tourism map. Adrian Zecha, the founder of the luxury group GHM – but also the intimate Amanresorts – made no mistakes when he launched his lastborn, The Nam Hai. A finalist at Mipim 2007, the project received support from the investor Indochina Capital and banked on the country’s growing appeal to luxury clientele. With its seaside location near Hoi Han –an ancient trading port on Unesco’s World Heritage list– and near the international airport in Danang, the idyllic site of Nam Hai stands on 31 hectares. The limited decorative elements and the property’s clean design by the Parisian firm AW2, are inspired by the imperial architecture of the ancient Hue capital and local traditional habitations. At the heart of this historic Vietnam, mid way between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, the Nam Hai distils a discrete luxury that integrates its environment as well as its epoch. The rooms offer all the modern comforts: flat screens, Bose speakers, WiFi access, Espresso machines… For greater intimacy, each of the 40 villas with 1 to 5 rooms has its own private swimming pool. Clients of the hotel rooms have three swimming pools available a well as athletic facilities (tennis, badminton, basketball, fitness). The indoor restaurant and the beach restaurant both offer international as well as local cuisine. But relaxation could not be complete without a spa. Opening out onto nature and the lagoon, this privileged space has a series of treatment and relaxation pavilions on the water.
